A simple Halloween card to share today....

The background was created by stamping Cover-A-Card Spider Web CC141 on white card stock with Versafine Onyx Black Ink and embossed with Clear embossing powder. Memento Tangelo was sponged around the edges.  
I used one of the sentiments from the Have Broom will Travel set and it was stamped and embossed the same as the background.
I used just this fabulous spider from the Spider Web DIE115-J
, it was die cut with black sparkly paper and popped up over the circles.
Thanks for stopping by and have a fabulous day!

  1. Beautiful card Ellen. I have the spiderweb CAC and love it. Not just for Halloween but for fantastic texture in backgrounds. I hope you are doing well. We've had a super busy (but fun) summer :) Hugs, Shirleyxx
